That wasn't supposed of IDE in the war against SCSI either, but look
where we're now. :-)

The one argument that noone brought around here is (and it is the
killer argument for me in IDE vs. SCSI): "external disk trays". Try
that with IDE (current IDE please. No SerialATA. ;-) ) without lots of
"out of spec" cables dangling out of your "enterprise computing
solution".

If you need more than say, three or four disks, your solution is
SCSI. Or FibreChannel.

Henning
